The first community pottery studio for and by people of color.
Est. 2017 in Los Angeles and now with two locations, POT is the first community pottery studio in the United States that’s owned, operated by, and intended for people of color. Through clay we cultivate pleasure, community, and new career paths for our communities while breaking opportunity cycles in our industry. We felt a need for spaces that feel fun and empowering for those marginalized in most ceramic spaces - namely people of color, the queer community, and the youth. For these reasons, we intentionally plan unique programming while also making pottery accessible to our communities through our non-profit arm, The Potluck Initiative. Come through and take a class with us!

Est. 2017, our first studio POT sits in Echo Park. This studio offers 24/7 memberships as well as a variety of wheel throwing classes. This includes drop-ins, Spanish speaking classes, and private wheel parties. These classes are smaller for a more intimate setting.

Est. 2020 and located at Jefferson & Crenshaw, our second studio POT GARDENS offers 24/7 memberships as well as our full class programming. This includes all levels of wheel and handbuilding classes, unique workshops, private classes, Spanish speaking classes, and community events.
